About Justin Welch

I’m Justin and I Teach drums and record professional Drum Tracks and here’s a little info about me.


When I left school I decided to move to London to study drums with Francis
Seriau, founder and director of Drum Tech as drumming had always been
such a passion of mine. After a very short time, I joined the Garage Band
Spitfire, and we were lucky enough to release 4 EPs and 1 album along with
lots of touring. In 1993 I formed the band Elastica with Justine Frischmann.
Elastica went on to have great success, signing to Geffen records and selling
nearly 2 million records worldwide. We also toured the world many times over.
Our debut album was the fastest selling number 1 album in the UK of all time.
This opened many doors for me in the studio and for live work.


I have been teaching drums in schools and colleges in Devon from 2001- 2011 where i was working from the Trinity Guildhall syllabus. I am now a resident on the south coast and currently the drum lecture for City College Brighton & Hove and Access to Music Brighton.
